Makes me glad my daughter is so small - she's 13 months and 19 pounds...With the law here saying 30 pounds, she'll be 3 by the time she can front-face, at the rate she's been going lately!
Thanks for bumping this ladies!
I feel like I know a hell of a lot more now than before I read the post. I wonder why safety isn't as strictly enforced in this country?.. But then again, it is a parents personal decision whether they want their child rear facing or not. After reading this post, I will certainly keep Dominick's carseat rear facing for a while!
I bought my son a new seat today. It's rear facing up to 35lbs and forward facing up to 50. It's a Evenflo Triumph Advance LX. I liked the shape and and he fits in it so much better. No more cramped baby!
i have been looking up all the studies on the rear facing longer , but here is the thing all the crash tests have been rear end .so what happens if its a front end crash.my self my oldest is almost three hes to big to rearface still .
